Full description
Begin your one-of-a-kind historical experience in Ho Chi Minh City with a visit to the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels. Spanning a formidable 250 kilometers, Cu Chi is one of the most renowned historical sites of the Vietnam war. 

The tunnel system was created in 1948 to assist the Viet Minh as they fought the French for independence. It became legendary during the 1960s for playing a pivotal role in the war by allowing the Viet Cong to control large rural areas just 65 kilometers away from Ho Chi Minh City. The elaborate tunnel system is made of clay mixed with laterite and consists of hospitals, kitchens, store areas, and working rooms, all of which you’ll get to explore completely underground.

Later in the afternoon, visit some other major attractions in Ho Chi Minh City: the War Remnants Museum, the Reunification Palace, the Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Old Post Office, fascinating buildings considered emblematic of Ho Chi Minh City due to their architecture and historical significance.
